To inculcate web/mobile app accessibility as part of the skill set and professional ethics of ICT practitioners, the OGCIO has organised the following activities:
Web/Mobile App Accessibility Seminars and Technical Workshops – to help corporations and organisations better understand the importance of web/mobile app accessibility, share best practices and related skills for making their mobile applications and websites accessible.
Incorporating Web/Mobile App Accessibility into ICT Curriculum – to inculcate the future ICT workforce with professional knowledge and ethics by inviting higher education institutions to incorporate web/mobile app accessibility in their ICT curriculum.
Organising Recognition Scheme
To encourage and incentivise wider adoption of web/mobile app accessibility in non-government mobile applications and websites, we jointly organised with the Equal Opportunities Commission a Recognition Scheme to show appreciation to local enterprises and organisations for making their mobile applications and websites accessible.
